Wetsuit Swimming at the Pool

221223 1628 I’m posting my old drafts UNEDITED. Reading the below I hope that was a rental wetsuit. I believe swimming in chlorine cancels any kind of warranty on a wetsuit. Do you like to swim? (I’ve said it before on this blog, but nothing makes you feel more out of shape than swimming.)

The day before today I got up and was at the pool by 6AM. It’s still dark here in Missouri at 6AM this time of year, and as I mentioned in an earlier post, we’re swimming at the outdoor pool. So with my shaded goggles I could just make out the stripe on the bottom of the pool, but I did come close to hitting my head on the wall the first couple of laps.

Swimming in the dark was interesting, but the significant point about this workout is how easy it felt. That’s due, I’m sure, to my wetsuit.
